Many high school students have not thought about the major they want to take in the university and even though they have decided what major should they take, there is at least 1 – 10 high school student confused about which major to choose.
There are a lot of majors to choose from in college, maybe some of them have decided what they wanted to take, but that’s just several of them. For example, in medical school, most high school students fail in this major is because they don’t understand the major they have chosen and they are only based on the kind of things they love or what they are passionate about.
Basically, medical school is different from other majors because the journey is quite long and takes a long time to graduate. Besides that, different exams and curriculum make new graduates who study in the faculty of medicine feel anxious because they don’t understand how to survive in medicine because they don’t have any experience of this major. moreover, even some of them who have taken medicine as their major and embarked on their journey, tend to question themselves “Is medicine the right major for me?”
To solve this problem, SCOPH and SCOME CIMSA UPH held an annual project in 2 days called SCOOBYDOO 7.0, which aims to introduce high school graduates to medical school to be more prepared to face medical curriculum. Scooby-Doo itself contains sessions such as PBL (Problem Based Learning), CS (Clinical Skill), Plenary, a grand lecture, laboratory sessions, and a talk show with alumni of CIMSA UPH and external partners which was Mediccation (medical talk and communication) to discuss about medical education issues and the importance of collaboration between health workers. PBL and CS are study group sessions where students can discuss a medical case with senior members of CIMSA UPH as their tutors. This year, the topic being conveyed is “Dengue fever”. Hence, all the sessions in this activity will discuss about “Dengue Fever”.
Starting in the middle of September 2020, SCOPH and SCOME CIMSA UPH prepared this project, which was held on the 23rd – 24th of October 2021 with a 5-hour duration per day through the Zoom platform. For the PBL and CS sessions, each group study consists of 1 tutor and 10 – 12 participants and for the talk show itself
SCOOBYDOO 7.0 provides high school graduates to have more insight about daily medical school life, in hopes to help them determine if medicine is the right major for them pursue.
